26 April 1944 Mission #73 Target: Gutersloh

General briefings for (26) crews were held between 0230-0300 hours and take-offs commenced at 0550. Captain Good of the 579th and Lieutenant Jackson of the 576th Squadron were designated lead Bombardiers. Despite a forecast of lO/lOths coverage over the target area, no PFF radar lead ships were provided to lead the Group. As a result, all (26) aircrews did not bomb. No enemy opposition was encountered but (1) aircraft was damaged by flak upon return at 1045 hours.
